Where is Feinstein on the EFCA?

The Courage Campaign is asking people to tell Senator Feinstein to join the rest of the California Democratic Congressional delegation and co-sponsor the Employee Free Choice Act. From their email:

The Employee Free Choice Act is an essential piece of our national economic recovery program. It allows workers to organize a union more easily and free from employer interference, giving them the power to more successfully negotiate with large corporations to protect the middle class during this severe recession.

This is one of the most important pieces of legislation this year. President Barack Obama supports it, as do most Democrats, including Senator Barbara Boxer. A Gallup Poll last week found that a clear majority of Americans support the Employee Free Choice Act.

Senator Feinstein, however, has refused to take a position on the bill — even though she co-sponsored it and voted for it in 2007.

It is nice that the Senator co-sponsored the bill when it didn’t have a chance of getting out of the Senate. Things have changed, though, and her silence is deafening. Go sign the letter, here.
